Your Cell Phone Is A Document Scanner

CamScanner is a free Android app that takes photos of documents, automatically crops the photo, enhances the photo, saves it, categorizes it, tags it, converts it to PDF, and uploads it to your cloud.  And CamScanner does it well.

Man Sets Out To Prove Earth Is Flat… And Succeeds

Everyone knows the Earth is round. It’s been taught to us all since we came out of the womb.  In fact, here’s a baby Onesie to show you what I mean:

Are You Addicted to the Drug Called Convenience?
